in case anyone has not yet seen this, take a look!

that is really remarkable.

It seems that she is simply able to identify every sound she hears and locate it on a piano.

looking a little further, it appears to me that ' hearing ' blends into her minds ear .... ie the difference between hearing an external sound and imagining an internal sound

you can see this demonstrated when she is accompanying the presenter singing; she is ' imagining ' notes into place to complete the harmony

this is for me a wonderful masterclass

so I thought I would share it
